Florae – Chester Subway Station, Toronto Transit Commission

Florae is a series of wall mosaics and art glass elements that serve to reflect the community that inhabits the Chester subway neighbourhood. The artworks are inspired by native plants and flowers of the area. Shifting and cascading hues depict the florae in changing seasons. The artist translates her ethereal paintings of light into colourful mosaics with their textural, glittering pieces of ceramic and glass. Mosaika of Montreal will be fabricating the mosaics and Soheil Mosun of Toronto will be fabricating the glass elements. The project will be installed in 2019.
